    Bookmark Notes:

    Waiting for Dyer in his flat, Damien wondered, in what felt like a very detached way, what the encounter between the two laicized men would be like. There’d been a tacit acknowledgement, hadn’t there, that Joe and Damien were in some sense leaving the priesthood together ? They hadn’t really talked about it. But the assumptions were written in every small touch, every cigarette shared, passing from Joe’s lips to Damien’s and back again, every time they’d almost , but never - they’d slept together once, actually slept , that is, not had sex. Squashed side by side, in the narrow beds they gave the priests, not really sleeping very well at all, in a semi-embrace. It hadn’t happened again, and they hadn’t talked about it, not explicitly. Perhaps, Karras thought, he was wrong about what was there between them. It was easy to get swept away in the tide of Joe’s flippancy. Or perhaps it was Joe who was mistaken. Perhaps he, Damien, wasn’t really interested, and was about to run to the other end of the country and leave Joe behind. In that moment, he really wasn’t sure. He was free, wasn’t he? Anything could happen.
